Horn soloist joins brass bands

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - SOUNDS GOOD -

TWO of Hythe’s top bands will per­form to­gether again at their fifth an­nual con­cert in St Leonard’s Church this Satur­day.

The Hythe Sal­va­tion Army Band and the Hythe Town Con­cert Band will be joined by the Shep­way Gospel Choir and French horn soloist David Simms, who is study­ing at Trin­ity Col­lege.

Con­cert or­gan­iser Cllr Richard Car­roll said: “The event has gen­er­ated a good deal of friend­ship be­tween the two bands.

“Some­times when you get two bands on stage an el­e­ment of com­pe­ti­tion creeps in, but I’m pleased to say that has never hap­pened.

“It is prob­a­bly be­cause they are so dif­fer­ent – one is pure brass in­stru­ments, and the other a mix­ture of reed and brass in­stru­ments.”

Proms

The con­cert will start at 7.30pm and is free, al­though there will be a re­tir­ing col­lec­tion.

Cllr Car­roll said he hoped au­di­ence mem­bers would wave flags dur­ing the Last Night of the Proms sec­tion.

“I am de­lighted that this event con­tin­ues, and I hope it will for many years to come,” he added.
